Brittney was an absolute rockstar with our recent home purchase in Far Oaks! She showed us houses for nearly 8-months before we landed on the right one. Super responsive and kept us up-to-speed the entire buying process. We would definitely consider working with her and the HBJ team in the future!

My wife and I worked with Jenny this fall in buying our home in O’Fallon, IL. Our experience with her couldn’t have been better! We really appreciated all the insight and guidance when evaluating homes and placing offers. Jenny’s assistance during the whole process especially during inspections was above and beyond our expectations. We will be recommending Homes by Janell to our friends and family for their future home buying/selling needs!

If you are looking for the best real estate company, look no further. Janell has build the most amazing, thoughtful hardworking team of ladies willing to go above and beyond for your home buying and selling needs. And a special shout out to Rachel. She’s one of the most patient, understanding, kind and helpful persons I have every met. She goes above and beyond for people that are not even her clients. She’s a straight shooter, keeps her word. We are incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to cross paths with her back in 2019 for the first time. We will never have another realtor as long as we live near Rachel 🥰🥰 You would be doing yourself a disservice if you went with anyone other then Homes by Janel.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Janelle personally, as well as her absolutely fantastic team, on more than one occasion. Whether buying or selling, her honesty, careful and thoughtful writeups, and deep knowledge of the area made us feel like we were in capable hands. Buying or selling a home in an intensely emotional moment that matters, and having the right chemistry with the right person is critical to everyone's success. I would strongly recommend having Janelle in your corner.

Amazing! Everyone in this office is friendly, accommodating, and they all work as one wonderful cohesive unit. I am a first time home buyer, and they were all so patient and understanding. The entire process was way more simple and easy than I had anticipated, all thanks to this group of wonderful ladies! If I could give 10/10 stars, I would!

The best experience I’ve ever had with a realtor. I’ve been through the process of buying/selling a home multiple times over the last 18 years due to my job and have never had this level of personal care and consideration from a realty team before. Would absolutely recommend to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the STL metro east area!

When looking for a realtor, we interviewed three. The reason we chose Janell with Homes by Janell is because she was honest and upfront from the very start. She didn’t sugarcoat anything like the other realtors did, and she gave us an accurate assessment of our property. She did her homework and presented a thorough report with comps in our neighborhood, and what our house should appraise for. She and her staff worked diligently with us to get our house prepared to sell. To our surprise, it took only two days to receive five offers, with three over the asking price. Janell and her team exceeded our expectations, and we are so happy we chose her. This was our fourth home, and the selling process went more smoothly than we anticipated. We couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you, again. The Guyer’s

Janell and crew were GREAT to work with during the sale of our home. They made everything about the process effortless and their attention made it seem like we were their only client. This is a WELL OILED MACHINE!!!!

Went on a listing appointment today that was one of the most interesting appointments I’ve been on in a long time. 

We spoke about the house for a brief period but mostly I learned about this man’s life. We talked about his time at war, his heritage, family, UFC fighting, travels, artwork on the walls and the book he wrote. I even left with a signed copy of his book!

Our listings are not just houses. They are homes….where conversations are had, memories are made and a place that tells a story of the owner.

Looking forward to sharing our new listing when it’s ready for the market. 

HOME is where your story begins. Let us help you!

I first developed an interest in real estate while taking a Real Estate Law class in law school. I went on to get my JD and have been practicing law for 10 years. About two years ago, a friend mentioned wanting to get her Real Estate license and my interest peaked again. I took the plunge and got licensed and am so glad I did. I love Real Estate! I love client interaction and helping people make one of the biggest decisions of their lives. I love all the different floor plans and history. I am so excited to join the Homes by Janell Team and grow my passion. I currently live in Holiday Shores with my two children and hope to take the Madison County market by storm. It would be my pleasure to work with you!
